G♥♥d Morning!  I woke up ready to kill it this week.  That doesn’t always happen, so I’m fully embracing it.  What a whirlwind of a weekend.  So many highlights.  So many good times.  So many sugar highs.  Hope you had a good one too.

Let’s start with the intentions…….

Intentions for the week:

  • Get my camera repaired.  Any suggestions where to go?  Locally?
  • Figure out how to add the recipe print option to the blogComing soon!!!
  • Squeeze my girl extra tight – ♥
  • Figure out WTF is wrong with our Netflix
  • Don’t hit “place order” a single time this week. #onlineshoppingproblems – (Epic FAIL!)
  • Make a turkey bolognese.  Over zoodles 🙂
  • Drop off donation pile
  • Lunch date with girlfriends
  • Finish/send last thank you cards
  • Call for online price adjustments!  Always do this friends! – I got back over $50!!


Last weeks intentions: {weekend notes}


Highlights from the weekend…..


Friday nights are for pizza //



Unless you are dieting.

I had a bite…not even going to lie.  I mean, look at it.  How do you say NO to that?

You don’t!

Taking pictures of them

taking pictures of their heart hands ♥


We hopped on Yolo Pedicab for a ride up and down Main Street.

If you have a chance, do it.  I believe they are out mainly on the weekends.  Busy weekends.  I messaged them via instagram and they called me right back.  Great customer service.


Country music cruisin’




Saturdayzzz //

When you wake up at 4am….

you watch movies and make a candlelit breakfast.  Obvi.


Home Again is such a cute movie.

Reese Witherspoon, a single mother of 2 girls living allows three young guys to move into her guest house.  She falls for one of the studs.  Her girls totally dig them.  Then she kicks them out.

That’s just a quick run though, but worth watching when you’re in the mood for a cute, easy movie.


Homemade bagels.  They turned out so good.  I even sent one to my official recipe taster (aka my Mom) for her input.  I little tweak and I will be sharing this week!  Stay tuned for this super easy recipe.


Breakfast for two!

Yogurt parfait


Cinnamon Rolls

Homemade bagels

With a side of chocolate milk in wine glasses.


Diggin in


Bay said it felt like she was on a date 🙂


Glee re-runs + french braids




DOCO: Downtown Commons.  Formerly known as Sacramento Downtown Plaza.  I had to google that shit.  DOCO just doesn’t sound right to me, but whatev’s.



The DOCO security robot is different.  Also had to google WTF it is…lol.  The girls dug it.


Punch Bowl Social //

We went to see what all the hype was about.

Food + bar + bowling + arcade + everything in between…..

Features Include: 8 bowling lanes, VR, 2 bocce courts, shuffleboard, 80’s arcade, billiards, giant scrablle, 2 karaoke rooms, bonzini, foosball, photo booth






Old Man Cans


As recommended, we made reservations for a table.  We actually didn’t even need reservations, but I can see where you would on a busy night.  We did find a table + arcade to hang at while we waited for a bowling lane.

All and all, I’d say this place has potential of being a fun spot to hang.  I was unsure how it all happens, so I think next time we’ll dive in and check everything out.

Their menu looks good….different, but good.

Other than the adult milkshakes (who orders that shit?) their drinks were good too.



Museum of Ice Cream //

I scream,

You scream,

We all scream for Ice Cream.

Santa brought Bay two tickets to the Museum of Ice Cream.  She opted for “experiences” over toys + other gifts this year.  I love it.  She loves it too.  Christmas morning she isn’t flooded with packages, which I wasn’t sure she’d be into.  Once she saw that Santa left Museum of Ice Cream tickets and I got her Safari West tickets…she was all about it.  We checked out Safari West just a couple of days after Christmas.  It was unbelievably cool and deserves it’s very own post…hopefully next week.

Ok, back to the Museum of Ice Cream……

Car selfies


Sooo cool


As we entered our tour guide offered pictures of everyone.  I dig it.


Pink everything.  Bay blended in perfectly 🙂


I was expecting a flood of peeps.  Crowding.

Not at all.

You’re in a group of 15 people.  Together you come up with a ridiculous team name.

Sprinkle-licous Bubblegum Buddies

Once you pass the second room, after the Ice Cream Vault,

You’re free to go at your own pace.

I’d say there are about 8 rooms.  This is considered a walking forward museum.  Meaning, you can’t backtrack.  Once you leave a room, you cannot return.  So peeps definitely take their time.

Bay and I were done in about 1 hr. 15 min.  from start to finish.  And we never felt rushed.

Why you look so pissed Bay?


Bay got so many complements on her hot pink fur….

Girls’ faux-fur coat


Let’s be real….

This place is 90% about the gram’

10% about the ice cream



This place is what Ice Cream dreams are made of.


Mary’s Dinner serves Spinkle Pool ice cream.  Cake batter with sprinkles of fizzy cotton candy.

Bay asked for seconds.




Each room has a fun theme.









The magnet room served mochi.  We opted for the cookies & cream.  yumm!


Unicorn room served Unicorn Milk Ice Cream in the cutest mini cones.


The one thing that got my attention…..

All the planned photo ops.  Some people come it with a plan for each room.  They take some time to set up and get the perfect shot.  Polaroids.  Cameras.  Video Cameras.  TONS of iPhone snapping away.

I was down with it.

Bay’s favorite room……



Basically Candyland in real life.


Glitter floors.  Hard to tell in this photo, but they were pretty!


Cotton candy time





My favorite room….

Sprinkle pool.  You’ve seen it on Instagram, no doubt.


It’s better than it looks….


Don’t you want to dive in?


They are fake (plastic) sprinkles.   But still so much fun.


De-Sprinkling once you’re out of the pool


The last room is lined with swings…..



Then you get the chance to buy a scoop + sit + shop.



You read great reviews + terrible reviews.

My review:

It’s what you make of it.  Be a kid.  Have fun.  Laugh.  Throw sprinkles in the air.

The entire experience was delicious.  Sampled sweet treats and gained hundreds, literally hundreds of insta worthy shots ♥


The #1 question…..

How in the Fuck did you get tickets.

It does feel super exclusive.  I get it.  Every time you go to their website it says SOLD OUT!

Sign up for their emails.  Subscribe.

MOIC randomly releases new dates/times.  If you’re on the email list, you will find out in advance.

They recently extended SF through February so get on it and get a ticket before they’re gone for good!

The Stinking Rose: A Garlic Restaurant //

“Follow your nose to the Stinking Rose”

You guys, I’ve legit wanted to dine here since the Real World season #3.  Remember Puck?  They went here on Valentines Day.  I thought it was sooo cool.

So cool, that I made reservations back in November…Ha.


Bay, my garlic loving girl was in heaven.


She ordered garlic butter noodles with chicken.


Did I mention that I’m not a fan of garlic whatsoever?

Broadway Plaza //

We made a pit stop for Nordy’s + Madewell.  Our first time at Broadway Plaza.

We will be back!!!




I’ve had these sunnies in my Nordy’s shopping cart and almost pulled the trigger.

Then, Bay kindly told me:

Those are wayyy too much for your age.

FML!  I put them back.  But, I’m not 100% I’m not going to get them jusssttt to bug the shit out of Bay 🙂


Pig //

We made it back just in time to welcome the newest members to the pig barn.

Bay’s Dad (aka baby daddy) spent the entire day at the Ottenwalter Pig Auction.


Say hello to Rodeo + Clover.


Bay Bakes //

We ended the night with one of Bay’s best creations to date.  Chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake bars.  OMG!  I for sure had a bite.  #cheater



Hope you had a great weekend!  And here’s to Monday being quick + easy on us.
